The bell dinging usually indicates something is still on, as in dome lights, a door ajar, or an accessory that does not require ignition being on. There is definitely a drain, which could be wiring shorting somewhere, little animals like to chew wiring, so that may be a possibility. One way to narrow down the search is the next time the bell keeps dinging, start pulling fuses until it goes out, which should narrow down the circuit that is draining the battery. Until you can determine which circuit it is, you can disconnect the battery at night to keep her from going dead, This is not a normal thing for these vans, but there are a lot more electrical items that have a tiny draw constantly on the batteries that didn't exist 20 years ago, from radios and electronics to security/key remote systems.
